Timeline

The original petition and NVC document cover sheet listed my wife’s married name. After we got an RFE checklist her name was changed to match her passport. A NVC Operator told me that my wifes name was changed back to how it was on her Passport and if we wanted to change it back to her married name she would have to get a new passport with her married name and send a copy to them requesting they change it back. What concerns me is that we have Two police report RFE’s she will send correcte ones from Brazil today to NVC that have her married name because her Brazilian ID has her MARRIED NAME with her maiden name in the middle. They will only issue a Police report that matches the name on her Brazilian ID.The NVC operator said this won’t be a problem because they have all her aliases in the system. I am worried about this and want to know if anyone had a similar issue. I feel like the safest thing to do is leave it alone for now.

We changed Mhay's passport right after the NOA2. For the police reports, they should be able to list all AKA's. I dont think the police reports will be a problem though. I know Mhay's police report from korea was in her maiden name because we werent married yet and we had no problems.

When we got married, I sent a copy of the old passport with my wife's maiden name to USCIS, then when I sent the DS-230 to the NVC I sent the new copy. My wife applied for a new passport as soon as she could, to reflect her new last name. I had her email me a scan of her passport and I printed it and included it into the DS-230 packet. If I were you, I would see if your spouse can renew their passport with their new name.

Otherwise, it is just a waiting game to see what goes through and what doesn't.

The name on the visa will reflect the name on her passport. It makes sense NVC reverted to your wife's maiden name as she has not yet changed her passport to reflect her new legal name.

Thanks I hope in my case things get better. I am starting to get Paranoid about the documents they are so strict.

This happened to me as well because my passport biographic page was still in my maiden name. I emailed my Consulate who said changes can be made at the interview stage. I would email your Consulate and confirm if they will do this as well if your wife now has a passport in her married name.

Edit to add: They will only do this if the PCC is in both the married name and the maiden name which mine is.

Thanks I am mostly worried that NVC will not accept The Police reports my wife Just FedEx to NVC. They are in her Married name as her surname but the middle of her name incorporates her maiden name. The NVC operator said it would be ok because in the computer at NVC has all her aliases are listed and we filed the petition under married name which in Brazil is her legal name. I hope the NVC operator is correct if not we will be set back at least another month or longer. It takes a week to get a FedEx document from my wife’s town to NVC.

This process is stressful to many including me. I am worried they will find something else wrong.
